economy and global aspects of the relations aren't lost. let me bring in chief washington correspondent, john harwood. a 15-minute meeting does that equate to a photo op perhaps? >> sure, it's a photo op. obviously, relation with mexico are extremely he important. the united states is the largest trading partner of mexico. we've seen that immigrants from mexico played a critical role in american elections, and it's a good time to broaden that dialogue to economic issues. you know, the issues of immigration have faded somewhat because the rate of immigration has slowed because our economy has slowed. the drug violence and down somewhat, so it's an aus pishs time for the mexican president-elect and for president obama. he's juggling the fiscal cliff but you have to walk and chew gum at the same time at the white house. >> you have to walk and chew gum where lives are lost almost every day with this drug war that is ongoing in mexico and spilling into as we know parts of texas and other border states. >> exactly. the question is, how do you broaden out the relationship? what

put a real strangle hold on the economy of gaza and something people who live there want to be released. the concern from the israeli side is what's going in and what's going out and are they preventing arms going in and it's -- it's a complicated issue. as i say, they did agree to easing some of it but we don't know what that looks like in the next 24 hours. >> time will tell. stephanie, thank you. stay safe. jim frederick is joining me, international editor of "time" magazi magazine. here we are in to the cease-fire territory. talking 24 hours ago -- >> yeah. >> thinking it was going to happen at that point. but egypt is basically the tent pole in supporting this and sponsoring and overseeing the implementation of this. how much stability is this going to provide to the ongoing talks of trying to have a durable out come? >> i think this is a great first step. the cessation of attacks and if if cease-fire holds, what kind of lasting peace can be built here? because there have been cease-fires in the past and you have this israeli governmental and military phrase of every coupl
